ELWOOD, IN – Today the City of Elwood Municipal Wastewater Utility broke ground on their $8 Million renovation and expansion.
The City of Elwood was required to develop a long-term plan to rectify conditions at the wastewater treatment facility in order to properly treat flows, replace and upgrade key components of the plant, and to comply with federal and state laws.
Under the direction of Mayor Ron Arnold, the Board of Works and key utility personnel undertook an exhaustive and diligent process of reviewing engineering proposals from numerous firms. Triad Associates was selected for their expertise and commitment to provide a cost effective, comprehensive solution for the City.
The plan developed by Triad Associates includes replacing some key treatment components and expanding the plant capacity in order to eliminate overflows. This is being accomplished with new head works equipment and new higher performing pumps, modifying some existing concrete tanks to accommodate an important aeration process, new clarification, and final effluent disinfection. The new components have all been designed with improved electrical efficiencies, simplifying the treatment process and minimizing operation and maintenance costs to the City upon completion.
Building Crafts, Inc. was the successful bidder for construction of the project, and documents were signed on December 30, 2014 to commence construction. It is anticipated that the work will take one year. The project is being funded by a low-interest 20-year loan from the Indiana State Revolving Fund Program.
The wastewater treatment plant is located on South J Street (West of South 13th Street) Map link: http://goo.gl/EFtc1O
Statement by Mayor Ron Arnold on the Elwood Waste Water Groundbreaking
I want to welcome everyone to this important milestone for the City of Elwood. You know when I think back on the first day I took office, I was presented with an agreed order that I had to sign agreeing with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management to get our water treatment systems in compliance.
It has come, with a significant investment from the people of Elwood, that we stand here today breaking ground for this state-of- the-art Water Treatment System. A significant number of people have worked hard to help Elwood get to this point today. Our efforts have paid off and will have major long-term benefits.
I want to point out 2 major events that we are celebrating today. These events were accomplished through a joint effort and a lot of patience, hard work and political capital:
1: For the first time we are no longer under an agreed order thanks to all the hard work from Josh, Glenn, and the entire team.
2: This is a project, that at one point, was projected to cost the taxpayers over 9 million dollars. Thanks to a lot of hard work from a lot of people, we have now reduced the projected costs down to 7 million dollars.
This is a very important event for Elwood and the Utility customers. While this might not be as exciting as a new businesses coming to town creating hundreds of jobs, this infrastructure is critical to attracting new businesses and industry to Elwood in the future.
Getting the City of Elwood out from under the agreed order is a great accomplishment and will release a lot of pressure for the future generations and citizens of Elwood.
As your Mayor, I am committed every day to work to improve the Utility Department and make sure that we continue to be on solid financial footing.
I want to thank you for coming today and joining me as we break ground on this important project.
